Almost a Miracle.
One of the most startling changes
ever seen in any man, according to W.
B. Holsclaw, Clarendon, Texas., was
tffected years ago in his brother. "He
had such a dreadful cough," he writes,
"that all our family thought he was
going into consumption, but he began
to use Dr. King's New Discovery, and
was completely cured by ten bottles.
Now he is sound and well and weighs
218 pounds. For many years our fam
ily has used this wonderful remedy
for Coughs and Colds with excellent
results." It's quick, safe, reliable and
guaranteed. Price 50 cents and $1.00.

" A feeling of sadness accompanies the
discovery of the first gray hairs which
unfortunately are looked upon as heralds
of advancing age. Gray hair, however
handsome it may be, makes a person
look old. We all know the advantages
of being; young. Aside from the good
impression a youthful arpearance makes
on others, simply knowing that you are
"looking fit" gives one courage to
undertake and accomplish things. So
why suffer the handicap of looking old
on account of gray hairs, when a simple
remedy will give your hair youthful
color and beauty in a few days' timet
Most people know that common gar
den sage acts as a color restorer and
scalp tonic as wcIL Our grandmothers

we have an ideal preparation of Sage,
combined with Sulphur and other valua

and thin, weak hair that is split at the

applications of this valuable remedy
will bring back the color, and in a short
time it will remove every trace of dan
